Denver is growing and changing. Through Denveright, we have the opportunity to make sure these changes benefit everyone.
Understanding that Denver will continue to grow, the update of Blueprint Denver is focused on using that growth to create “complete” neighborhoods throughout the city using quality-of-life infrastructure like safe sidewalks, parks and open space, housing options, transit access and more. Many of these amenities will be delivered through the other three Denveright plans.
In late 2017/early 2018, based on your input on the recent "future places" workshops and online map survey, planners will release an updated draft of a map that categorizes Denver by future places: corridors, centers, residential areas and districts. The 2002 Blueprint Denver plan's "Areas of Change/Areas of Stability" concept will be replaced with a recommendation that provides more shades of gray.
The new concept will acknowledge that all places are on a continuum of change in pursuit of becoming complete — not just through enabling or limiting development, but through quality-of-life infrastructure for all. Key to this concept will be proper scale and intensity for all places, and appropriate transitions between residential areas and other places. Watch for updates on this and get ready to weigh in on the next draft of the future places map in early 2018!
